A group of more than 60 United States congressmen asked the government of that country to initiate actions against México within the framework of the T-MEC by federal government policies on the importation of transgenic corn.

In a letter sent to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), Congressmen agreed that México must assume the commitments agreed in the T-MEC.

They remembered that The United States expressed its disagreement for the discriminatory measures that the Mexican government adopted ban imports of transgenic corn.

The Joe Bien government requested a period of technical consultations, but the document sent to the ambassador Katherine Thai, head of the USTR accuses the inaction of the authorities on the subject.

Lack of action creates a dangerous precedent that promises made under USMCA and other trade agreements by extension, can be ignored without consequence,” the document says.
